Deleteable/Eraseble whispers or direct messages.
For give aways sometimes important.
The messages which sometimes contain sensible personal data like addresses or phone numbers for tracking sending and tracking purposes should be deletable/erasable.
It could get very ugly if a streamers or a mods account would get hacked and a bunch of personal data gets leaked or stolen.
You should be allowed to delete whispers. There should not be a way for whispers that you want to get rid of to come back into your stream. Permanent deleting whispers should be available
If you happen to send personal information it can't be deleted, I hope twitch makes an option for deleting whisper messages
Has Twitch ever responded as to why full deletion (not archiving) of Whisper messages is not enabled/possible. Not only have I received messages that I do not want associated with my account but I also may have messages that I would want to remain confidential due to personal information, incorrect messaging, personal information from others, improper messaging etc. I feel this is a legal exposure risk for Twitch in the event someone was able to hack into the system and view Whispers. Considering the amount of money spent on Twitch and streamers, I feel this is a necessity.
what the **** can I do I accidentally posted a message to the wrong person... I need it gone
why can't you delete them ugh I pasted something in the wrong whisper they should not see? how can I get rid of it
Let us delete whispers, like you can delete messages on other social platforms. Some people want to delete messages they regret or contain potentially personal information.
Yes please let users delete whispers on both sides.
There is shared Personal Information from giveaways or whatever that users dont want on the internet anymore, being able to delete them for both the sender and the receiver is an absolute must.
Totally agree with this. If someone has been banned and then reinstated into a channel, it would do much to help the person by them being able to remove any whispers having to do with that.
I sent too many whispers to someone while they weren't active, and it looks like I'm being desperate
What if you type something by mistake that could come across as bad? Users should get the right to do that!
Several months of chat history and it's so so annoying to scroll all the way down. Please gib clear all history.
5 Years later twitch still hasn't implemented a function....
Just click the dustbin icon on the right of the Whisper panel?
Ich vermisse die Option, Nachrichten bzw. Chatverläufe im Flüsterchat löschen zu können. Bei WhatsApp & Co. funktioniert das problemlos. Gerade hier, wo ganz munter gequasselt und geflirtet wird, ist das nicht möglich. Es wäre toll, wenn die Löschfunktion mit ergänzt werden könnte.
I hope that the private message function can delete historical conversation records. Some data is left on it but cannot be deleted.
It is a shame, not to say scandalous that one is not able to delete their own (whisper) messages. That's crazy. This needs to be fixed.
sad fact is you use to be able to do this via the curse client when they first integrated twitch chat into it.
Please provide a function to delete the whispering exchanged with the other person.
If I accidentally whisper personal information or potentially abused words with the other person, please allow them to delete them from the server database so that they cannot abuse them.
Please add a function so that the other person can't see the whispering.
The whisper system in Twitch chat is unfortunately not without some issues. I frequently whisper friends on Twitch and when the number of messages becomes more that one or two, the system gets buggy. It will randomly scroll you back to messages that had been sent sometime in the past. It will stop you from sending messages. It has on occasion, sent a message and then not posted, or posted it at some other random interval. On occasion, a msg from before will resend itself. These issues cause a great deal of frustration and confusion. While discussing it with a friend, we hypothesized that the system is not meant to hold a large number of messages. Perhaps by having the ability to purge whisper history, it will cut down on the number of bugs. It will also leave people feeling less vulnerable to the possibility of others gaining access to their information. (In addition, the whisper msg system may need to be overhauled.)
Why are we not able to delete messages?
